New-York-I-Love-You

For quote of the day today, I bring you the very best, Chuck Bass. I know I’m not the only one that loved Chuck and Blair together… and got extremely emotional over the 6 seasons with everything that happened between these two. “If two people are meant to be together, eventually they’ll find their way back.” Well Chuck did tell us… shut up I’m not crying, you are! 😭😍🙌🏼❤️

There’s absolutely a disparity. That’s a statistical fact. Why that is, I don’t really know. I am excited, though, that there are so many wonderful women emerging now and directing.

Natalie Portman

Natalie Portman directed by women filmography

Developing dir. Marya Cohn - 1994
New York, I Love You dir. Mira Nair - 2008
Illusions & Mirrors dir. Shirin Neshat - 2013
A Tale of Love and Darkness dir.  Natalie Portman - 2015
Planetarium dir. Rebecca Zlotowski - 2016
On the Basis of Sex dir. Mimi Leder - 20??
Bronco Belle dir. Anna Rose Holmer - 20??

So I loved many many things about Master of None’s season 2......

……..and one of those things was the fact that its 6th episode, “New York, I love You”, is basically what in more perfect world  2008′s New York I Love You should have been. That film belongs to the series Cities of Love. It was the second in the series, following the much superior 2006 ‘s Paris Je T’Aime.

Now to be fair New York I Love You (2006) has some good moments. I especially love the short with Eli Wallach and Cloris Leachman and the one that was directed by Natalie Portman. But the film as whole, has a pretty negative vibe  and seems badly put together.

Master of None’s love letter to NYC , is much more consistent, emotional and sweet than that film. Plus it features a fake Nicolas Cage horror film, with Andy Samberg doing his great Nicolas Cage. And I’m always happy to see that.
